The World Health Organization just picked a new leader. These are the challenges he faces.
The Washington Post

On May 23, the World Health Organization elected a new director-general (DG): Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, known as Tedros. The first DG from an African nation, he is also the first nonmedical doctor to lead the organization. With a doctorate in public health, he served as Ethiopia’s health minister from 2005 to 2012 and foreign minister from 2012 to 2016.

This is a fraught moment in WHO’s history, given the organization’s budget crisis — and criticism during the 2014 Ebola crisis. Can Tedros succeed?
